This seems fine with me; what will happen though to content tagged with gsw-FR if gsw becomes a prefix for a new tag (Randy asked previously, will gsw-FR be synonymous with gsw-Elsässisch ?  probably should be for now)
But no doubt some speakers may already be using gsw-FR so the comments field will give this use legitimacy, so I would o.k. it.
